Andrew J. Chaske
Forever Loved, Forever Missed, Always in our hearts. Andrew “Andy” Joseph Chaske (Wahinkpe Wikcemna “Ten Arrows”) Began his earthly journey 04/01/2000 in Devils Lake, ND. He began his journey to the spirit world 09/29/2020 in Crow Hill, ND.
Andrew Joseph “Andy” Chaske was born April 1, 2000 in Devils Lake, ND to John Chaske Jr. and Bonnie Birdsbill. Andy grew up living with his grandparents John and Ramona Chaske, whom he loved so very much, in the Crow Hill area, along with his brother Lathan (some with their father John Jr.) They traveled to many states and seen many wonderful sights. The most memorable trip was to Niagara Falls. Andy was always known for his upbeat attitude, kind heart, compassion for others and being very blunt when it came to telling those he cared about how it was. Andy spent a lot of time with his sister Nikya, watching and making videos on Facebook/TicTok. He always had a smile on his face and a shoulder to lean on for those that crossed paths with him.
Andy is survived by his mother Bonnie Birdbill, siblings: Lathan Chaske (Sherea and daughters) , Jerome Elk Jr and twins-Nikalus and Nikya Elk.; grandparents: John & Ramona Chaske, Dallas & Renita Delorme, Janice Feather, Roger Feather, Tom Lee, Kevin Lawrentz, Ronnie Mckay, Anna Mckay, Zeta Mckay, Lorraine “Josie” Mckay, Corby Mckay, Kenny Mckay, Murray Mckay, Busty Mckay; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Andy was preceded in death by his father John Chaske Jr., aunt Missy Chaske, uncle John Feather Jr., grandmothers Bonita “Bunz” Feather and Barbara Mckay, many grandfathers too numerous to mention, most recently Winfield Chaske Sr. who left for the Spirit world on the same day as Andy.
